From the Elisabet Ney Museum:
“On August 18, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified, giving women in the US the right to vote. Since then it has become all but unimaginable to conceive of its absence. But it was an arduous campaign to reach this milestone, and it wasn’t, in fact, until August 6, 1965, with the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, that all American citizens were guaranteed to share in this privilege.
On August 6, 2020, The Elisabet Ney Museum will open SUFFRAGE NOW: A 19th Amendment Centennial Exhibition. In SUFFRAGE NOW, women and women-identifying photographers nationwide were invited via a juried open call to share photos that comment on the Centennial of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment. The most eloquent images were chosen and included in this very special online exhibition, which will remain accessible through at least January 31, 2021. The Elisabet Ney Museum is a uniquely qualified venue to host such an exhibition, as its namesake was a firebrand artist and activist who fought bravely for Democracy and Women’s Suffrage in Europe and America but did not live to see it secured.
For more information about the exhibition, and links to it upon its opening, as well as curricular material and a discussion calendar, please visit www.elisabetneymuseum.org. If you have further questions, feel free to contact the museum directly at [email protected] and put “SUFFRAGE NOW” in the subject line. You can also access museum and exhibition information via the Museum’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/ElisabetNey , or Instagram account, @elisabetneyATX.”
